Fear is a tool that the devil uses to trap us and keep us from using our full potential to follow Christ. It’s something that a still struggle with to this day.
I fear people’s opinions. I hate when people don’t like me and it’s something I struggle with every day.
I fear that I can’t be perfect or the “perfect Christian”. Logically I know it can’t be done, be perfect that is, but my mistakes and failings always weigh heavy on me and my heart.
I fear that I’m not enough. That I’m not doing enough for God and not enough for the people around me.
These are really personal fears that I face and I want anyone who’s reading this who might have the same or similar fear that there is hope yet.
I don’t always feel this way but when I do I just pray and pray hard for these to be lifted from my heart and to work through my fear. Keep studying and keep worshiping the Lord. I fail at those too sometimes and I can never achieve perfection but I can always get up again and try again to run after God.
